korea declaring a state of war with south korea, they are cautious about what kim jong-un means about that exactly. here is nbc's ian williams from south korea. >> reporter: craig, not only did north korea declare a state of war, it says it will now deal with south korea according to war-time regulations. it's not clear what that means since this peninsula has been in a technical state of war for 60 years. officials here in seoul dismiss the claims and a rally where tens and thousands turned out shouting death to the u.s. imperialists. he's already scrapped the korean war and cut lines. kim has ordered his missiles on stand by to strike the u.s., guam, even hawaii. experts doubt he has the ability to hit u.s. targets and thinks it would be pretty suicidal to try. they believe a full-scale conflict is extremely unlikely but they do worry about a more localized provocation, perhaps around yellow waters where the north has been holding exercises. there have been several clashes there in recent years and when i visited, i found the most vulnerable island ten miles of the north on a high s

television announced north korean leader kim jong un has decided the time has come to settle accounts with the u.s. >> ( translated ): he has signed the plan on technical preparations of strategic rockets of the korean people's army, ordering them to be on standby for fire so that they are able to strike at any time the u.s. mainland and its military bases in the pacific, including hawaii and guam, and those in south korea. >> suarez: state media also released photographs of kim and his senior generals during an emergency meeting late last night. they're seen looking at a map, purportedly showing u.s. cities that might be targeted by north korean missiles. the white house responded through a spokesman traveling with president obama today. he said bellicose rhetoric only deepens north korea's isolation. on thursday, a more forceful demonstration: a pair of b-2 stealth bombers flew 6,500 miles to south korea and back, as part of ongoing joint military exercises between the two nations. the chairman of the joint chiefs, general martin dempsey, addressed the flight during a briefing with

. here's the young leader. so behind kim jong-un, this is mainland strike plan. there are four missile trajectories, hawaii, washington, d.c., los angeles, and a fourth city that some say appears to be austin, texas. chris law wednesday, we don't believe north korea has rockets that can actually reach all the way to the u.s. mainland. so this is likely wishful thinking on their part. what is the real danger here? >> yeah, brook, u.s. officials are worried right now about austin. but they are worried about the tens of thousands of american troops who are stationed in bases in guam, japan, south korea. those locations are very much within reach of some of that north korean artillery and rockets. they're also worried about this young, inexperienced leader, kim yong-un. they're worried as this rhetoric continues to heat up and continues to go back and forth that his desire to prove to his own people that he is a strong leader may cause a rash action. something like shelling some of the border islands like north korea did a few years ago. that could spark a low-level conflict that if no one

north's latest moves. look past the picture of kim jong un putting north korean rockets on standby. there is a chart marked u.s. mainland strike plan with missile trails at hawaii, california, d.c. and, for some reason, austin, texas. it's wishful thinking on pyongyang's part. they can't reach the u.s. yet. but tens of thousands of oh american troops are well within range of a more limited strike, something short of an all-out attack. >> i think it's more in the sense of north korea kind of getting right up to the edge, stumbling and falling over the edge. >> reporter: former ambassador chris hill says the real danger is the north shelling a border island like it did in 2010. hill says there is a wild card here that worries the u.s. young, inexperienced kim jong un's desire to prove himself as a leader. >> i think north koreans have their daughtoubts about whether kid is up to it. >> reporter: so far the rhetoric has not been matched by military moves. but it has no foreseeable end game and could go on for a while. north korea's protested on the streets one day after the u.s. flew
